Oyster Knives

hobbess | Mar 15, 2010 01:10 AM

I know that Dexter Russel oyster knives are fish-house favorites, but does that also mean that they're the best oyster knife for the non-professional at home? Are there any other brands out there that might produce a better oyster knife?

And, if DR does indeed produce the best oyster knife, which one should I pick?

There's all these different DR oyster knives with specific geographic names like Boston, New Haven, Providence, and Galveston. Given those specific geographic names, I'm assuming those oyster knives work best for the oysters most popular in those regions. But, I'm in Southern California and there's no such Long Beach oyster knife.

And, there's also differences in blade length, ranging from 2 and 3/4 inches to 4 inches. Which one's the best size?
